Hi mummy06, of course nobody would believe you even if you say you have 6 kids these days :) . I took it to mean your child is born in 2006.

Welcome to KiasuParents.com. 26 people on the waiting list for childcare? You probably are trying for one of the premium ones. Which childcare are you shooting for? Do you really think it is really worth the wait?

Hi... my son was born in yr 2007. i choose the figure "06" as its my lucky number. :)
Ha.. you have guessed wrongly... i didnt tried for those premier ones. The child care with 26 on the waiting list is NTUC.

So it's kind of like the HelloKitty craze caused by Macdonald's during the early part of this decade? They were quite affordable too.

You mean its been a decade?!
No...comparing childcare services, NTUC is considered affordable, but comparing food, Macdonalds is a rip-off! But then again, 'affordability' is in the eyes of the beholder. :D

The NTUC childcare is nearer to my house thus its the main priority. My colleague who lives near me went to check out with the same NTUC about 6 months ago and was told they have 50+ on the waiting list.
Ridiculous right?
Now i am trying to look around at other childcare centers... etc cherie hearts and bright kids which is further away.
